David’s Reflections

  • God’s Breath of New Life

    Good morning. Today, I will share about the new life that the Spirit of God gives to us. This Sunday’s talk is a focus on the work and person of the Holy Spirit. This is most appropriate as we celebrate the Pentecost Week and today’s Trinity Sunday. Our scripture texts are found in Romans 8 and Psalm 29. Let us read: Romans 8:15-16. “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ The Spirit himself bears witness with our…

  • Psalm 8 (God’s Sweet Visit)

    One of my missionary friend told me of his experience with God’s visit. He saw God’s miracles and power in the missionary field. But, he experiences the intimate visit of God when he is out scuba diving and going under the waters watching creatures from the ocean. Another missionary friend told me that he experiences God’s sweet presence when he is taking a break and doing carpentry in his shop or work room. He imagines Jesus working with him doing wood work. Both of these friends are seeing the majesty of the Spirit of God in an intimate and renewing…

  • Mother’s Day 2021

    This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad that He has given me a wife and life-partner who is a wonderful mother and a great person to be with. I am honored to walk life with her. I am sure my own mother from heaven is smiling and looking down on us with so much delight and admiration. Happy Mother’s Day to Sarah!. Happy Mother’s Day to all the women, the sisters, the significant others, whom we can honor and we all love. We rejoice that God has made you and allowed us…

  • Choose Jesus

    What if there is a “red pill” you can take that would unplugged you from anything undesirable that you are attached to? Remember the movie where machines ruled and humans were treated like batteries? The red pill represents the choice to move forward. What if every Christian is given a choice to be fruitful? Would you make that choice? Read again the lectionary readings from the Gospels for this Sunday, May 2nd, from John 15:1-8. Jesus offers to us a life of “abiding in his love.” Go ahead and make that choice. Take the red pill and disengaged from your…

  • Love In Word And Deed

    “Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” (1 John 3:18) (So, I wrote a short reflection on my social media posting. And one of my friends shared her response. I gave some more thought about the challenges of practicing love and forgiveness in our lives. Please read below.) Today’s reflection comes from our lectionary readings from the New Testament, 1 John 3:16-24. Verse 16 says: “By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers [and sisters].”…

  • Declare His Glory

    “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!” (Psalm 96:3) We are to declare God’s glory among the nations. This is the essence of missions work. In all of Scriptures, it is clear that God is already declaring His glory. Even in places where there are no missionaries, God is already there and revealing Himself to the people of the land. Our part is to participate in this declaration. Are we participating? We participate in many ways. Praying for missionaries, giving to missionary work, sponsoring a child, and going to places for missions activities. These…
